English Cocker Spaniel Club of Canada

The Cocker Spaniel was introduced to America and Canada in the 1870s, where breeding for a purpose continued, but changes in breed type began to evolve. In 1940 the Canadian Kennel Club and in 1946 the American Kennel Club recognized the English Cocker Spaniel as a separate breed from the "American" Cocker Spaniel.
